...but to one person you may be the world. that quote in all reality, really is one of the best pieces of advice you can ever take to heart. for many years (actually as long as i can remember) whenever i would wish for anything, i would want happiness. Not just a day or two of joy, but true happiness and ease and peace in life. I'm not really sure when it happened or how it came about, but after one of the darkest times in my life, I woke up and just felt it one day. Happiness.
I'm not always in a great mood, some days I'm cranky and still get down, but essentially, it's meaningless stuff anymore and it passes pretty quickly. I'm always left with a feeling of completeness. Some days there are things I would ultimately want to change or fix, but I know that even if I don't get around to it, I'm still okay and I'll be good no matter what.
So now what do I ask for? Now what do I want? Once I found this ever ellusive happiness, I began wishing I could make a difference just in one person's life. However, I'm pretty sure I have already accomplished this goal, so now I will set out to make a difference in a hundred people's lives. Anyways, thats not my point. My point is, I realized one day that my name may not strike a chord with a thousand people, but it strikes a chord to at LEAST one person's life somewhere at any given time. And not a chord where they think "I'd like to off that broad"...more like "she's an amazing person". So, I mean something to someone, somewhere and thats all that in turn matters to me. The people I choose to associate myself with on a regular basis at this point in my life are equally awesome people, so making a difference in a fellow awesome person's life makes my achievement of my goal even more impressive. haha.
Okay, okay, i ramble a lot. Thats what happens. I get it from my father. Point of all of this is: we all get down, we all have off days. Sometimes now for a split second I think "doesn't anyone care?" But you need to shake it off, because the reality is you DO matter to at least one person out there, perhaps even someone you least expect to matter to. So, your name may not be as widely used as say, paris hilton, but really who wants those sorts of things associated with the announcing of their name? Not me. So just remember, that you do indeed matter to someone out there somewhere. I can guarantee you this, so always believe it and use it to put a skip in your step.
The world needs some more positivity and selfless actions, so take this to make you feel better and encourage you to continue in life. You can thank me for it later. :) But changing your attitude towards yourself, your worth, and life, can essentially start a ripple effect of awesomeness in your own life and every life that in turn touches yours.
Now I'm going to take a nap. You need a good rest to make a change in life too, kids. Remember that.
